Welcome!

Hi! Welcome to Sweaters and Sweets, a fashion and lifestyle blog that I created to share my personal style, inspirations and little bits and pieces of my life. I’m a 20 something year-old born and raised California girl looking to move to the East Coast for Grad school next fall, (crossing my fingers that I get in!). During this confusing and in between time in my life I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to finally launch my blog, something I have wanted to do for years and I am SO excited about it!!

When I first started writing my about me I said something along the lines of, “fashion has always been an interest of mine”. Well, that is kind of an understatement; I eat, sleep, and breathe fashion. Whether it is adding a new piece to my wardrobe, following another blogger, or spending countless hours on Pinterest, fashion has always been my escape and something I’ve continued to grow a passion for. Growing up, I was always the one who helped my friends put together outfits, give advice on what to wear and was always the closet that was being rummaged through (still am) and I love it!! However, my love for fashion wasn’t really appreciated in my household, and I would constantly hear things like “it’s not a fashion show”, or “you don’t need to get dressed up”. After a few years of being introduced to the blogging world and the realization that there were so many people out there that are just like me, I started thinking about an outlet I could create for people to come, get inspired by my looks or content and most importantly not feel judged for it.

My hope for all of you fashionista’s out there is that you can find inspiration through Sweaters and Sweets to put together simple, chic and affordable outfits. I’m a firm believer that if you look good you feel good. We have to wear clothes, so why not find some that you love and feel great in! I have absolutely no idea what I’m doing but I’m eager to learn and ready to get started. How hard can it be right!?(;

So sit back, grab a glass of wine (or bottle) and join me on my adventure and journey into the blogging world of finding myself, my career and my place in this world, one chic outfit at a time.
